    From the Detroit News : " I always had a special affection for the Leo McGarry character on "The West Wing," thinking the part was so well cast and acted by John Spencer, they just might be one and the same. Likeminded men In one sad parallel, Leo suffered a heart attack in a past episode. Some of them reported that Stockard Channing was with John Spencer when he died. Read a transcript from Entertainment Tonight here.

    Extra reported that the whole cast will have a say in the resolution of the continuing storyline. During last night's "West Wing" broadcasting on Bravo, there was a small photo tribute to John Spencer during commercial break. News, which airs of course on E! It was short, but nice Spencer, who died at age 58 after a heart attack, played the tough but beloved Leo McGarry on the NBC series, and he was a lot like his character, particularly the beloved part. Even before his death, cast members and producers regularly talked about Spencer as one of the nicest, most generous actors they knew.

    And as the show's creators, Aaron Sorkin and Tommy Schlamme, said in a press statement, he was, simply, "an uncommonly good man.

    Last season, in an early episode, McGarry suffered a heart attack, which is why speculation around Hollywood, as tragic as it sounds, is that producers may decide to explain Spencer's sudden absence by giving Leo another, this time fatal, attack. Warner Bros. Television, which produces "The West Wing," would not comment on plans, but a spokeswoman said the show is on a break and executive producers John Wells and Lawrence O'Donnell were not scheduled to start production meetings until the first week of January.

But the show spends most of its time with Santos and his people, and it's hard to believe they would opt for Alda to star in future seasons when they have the younger-appealing Smits. However, if Wells and his crew are convinced NBC won't renew the series, that might change their decision on the election. The story stands now with Santos a bit behind Vinick and the election a few weeks off.

    Producers could write in McGarry's death as something that brings sympathy to Santos, and puts him over the top.

    Or they could construct it as a hardship for the Democrats, one that brings Santos' judgment into question because he picked a vice president who already had concerns about his health. But the truth is, no one right now wants to be thinking about plot turns. Spencer was as respected, and as liked, as any actor in Hollywood, and people on the show have said there is no way to describe how much he will be missed.

    Over the years, I've seen Spencer in press conferences and on "The West Wing" set, and he was never anything but humble, open and kind. He seemed to always have a slight grin during press sessions, as if he got a kick out of the questions and the media interest in a show that he was on. I watched him on the set a couple years back, on a day he had a long, somewhat complicated scene.

    It was also a day when, for some reason, there was a steady parade of visitors, including a couple of people who, I think, won the visit in a radio contest. He made them feel like his friends.
